OH MY GOD. This is utterly wonderful. The song choice is PERFECT, the use of speaky face is INSPIRED and as a summary of season two it works SO WELL. Seriously, this is the BEST THING EVER. It's all so on the beat and slick and funny yet creepy at the same time and OHMYGOD. I'M DYING. 

Anyone who has ever seen even the tiniest bit of Sherlock has to watch this RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

The Good Wife 3x13. Entirely superficial not! recap:-- Kalinda, you looked REALLY HOT this episode. I think was the colour of her top, plus some stellar make up? Not sure what exactly, but her skin had all these different tones. She's gorgeous. Not that they couldn't cut back further on the black and increase the use of colour. (Navy? Dark brown? THERE ARE OPTIONS, OKAY.)

Once Upon A Time 1x09. Entirely fed-up not!recap:-- Fuck it. Emma you lose at life. Henry you are an ungrateful shit. Regina, I love you. Rumplestiltskin, I love you as well. Snow and Charming, you're all right but you don't get enough screen time. Everyone else, you are MADE OF BORING. (Red, you are still super!hot). Even mystery man-on-motorbike isn't enough to keep me interested. I had hopes, possibly not very high, but they were middling. Show, you ruined them. Now how am I going to get my Carlyle kick? Bring back SGU, you losers.

Sherlock 2x03/entire season 2. Entirely obsessed not!recap:-- I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR? (Or possibly just under a year) FFFFFUUUUUU. John, you were the wonderfullest wonderful ever to wonderful. Sherlock, you were manic this entire season, but it did make sense in context. Moriarty, you were the best villain in the entire world ever. He gave me shivers, actual physical shivers. I have to watch everything with Andrew Scott in now. EVERYTHING. HIS FACE. MY GOD. Molly and Lestrade, you were great, wish they'd had more screen time, but we got some nice round the edges character development, especially ep 1 and 3. Shame there wasn't more Sally and shame Anthea didn't seem to exist (though we did get more Mycroft, which I certainly approve of.) It was deffo darker this season, which makes me wonder where they're going to go in 3. Even more darker-er?

Oh wow, this really is about John, especially considering... ep3 spoilers... )

Anyway, somewhat related, I HAVE ROLLER SKATES! I realise this would make more sense had I told the internet about my intention to take up Roller Derby, so consider this a belated reveal. I INTEND TO TAKE UP ROLLER DERBY! )

They open with a quick selective rehash of the swimming pool scene:

It's weird seeing the actual actors all together again. Sherlock's face seems different after so long imagining him in my head whilst reading fanfic. My opinion of Jim has changed since seeing him the first time, (I've grown to hate him more, I was mostly bowled over by awesome and weirdness at first). John... John is much the same actually, huh.

They manage to amp back all the tension with the slow lead in, but then comes the drop of Sherlock's eyes to the bomb jacket and I just can't see how they're going to deliver the pay-off. Anything will be anti-climatic after so long a wait.


That was, 'dot dot dot,' for all you listening at home. )

When I go for my walk in the evening I always see this one Roe doe in the field across the road from the farm. It's directly on my route, so we usually do the, stop and stare at each other for a minute, thing. I see how close I can get. She just watches silently until finally deciding to bolt and goes leaping through the field into the spinney.

Well, I saw her again today, only this time she had a buck with her. It was adorable, they were messing about, following each other, him with his stumpy little antlers and both with their black noses. They were so wrapped up in each other, and I guess I was downwind, because I was able to get pretty close before she noticed and leapt away. He dozily hung about a bit longer, giving her a couple of confused glances until finally realising I was there. We did the stare-stare thing, his big ears angled towards me, and then he bounded off as well.

I saw them again once I got back, when I went to close my window, they'd crossed the road and hedge into our farm and ambled across the field, very elegantly leaping the fence before continuing on their way.

I'm going to take the camera next time and see if I can get some photos.


Re-watching 'A Study in Pink'. oh Mycroft Holmes. You are the sex. )

Does anyone have AIM? I use it now and then and it'd be nice to be able to chat to flist as well as RP peeps.


Please, someone tell me Amadeo/Zen has been written. IT HAS TO BE. OMG. I would also actually kill for an Amadeo/Mycroft crossover, but I'm guessing that's just me.

Thank you A, this is now stuck in my head forever ... salt peanuts, salt peanuts. (Also, that pic of his face is scaring me. No one's cheeks should look like that.) And have Young Frankenstein Puttin' on the Ritz, just 'cos.

Things in Sherlock fic I cannot deal with:

Mycroft being obvious
John outwitting Mycroft
Sherlock outwitting Mycroft
Anyone outwitting Mycroft
Lack of Mycroft pwning the world.


Stupid movies I can't wait to watch:

Cowboys and Aliens

Drive Angry


(*Karl Urban... What? Why does no one else see the similarity?)

Bloody hell. This teaching lark is harder than it looks. Also, why did I fail my exams again? Fucking retakes.

Rewatching The Great Game... JOHN TYPES WITH TWO FINGERS, HE IS A TWO FINGER TYPIST. AW JOHN. (Sherlock OTOH, is, of course, a touch typist).

OH MY GOD. This is too hilarious, too brilliant. The best sort of crack. And Mark Gatiss' face. IT IS WONDERFUL.

Tribute, fanwork, awesome.
It's like a dance, a video dance. A celebration of sound.

I feel like I'm both over-doing and over-sharing with all this "UP FANDOM" talk, so feel free to ignore the stuff under the cut.

Anomie by Charmax

Charmax made a Sherlock vid!!!!

Go. Watch. Enjoy!


I don't think I've ever made it clear how much I love STXI Sulu. I do, I really do.

It kinda crept up on me. At first I was all Kirk/Spock, yay! And then there was my raging crush on Uhura, and her hair, and her eyes, and her cheekbones, and her hair, and her chin tilt, and her painted nails, and that way she strokes Spock's head, and her miniskirt dress, and her super-awesome language skills, and her boots, and her everything, and her hair. OMG I have such a kink for that ponytail you have no idea.


But Sulu it was more, yeah he's a BAMF, but he's not grabbing me... until he did. OMG he did.

I don't know, maybe it's because he's totally the geeky one. I know they're all geniuses and Uhura's a whizz at stuff as well, but she's totally the Queen bee type, she's the centre of attention, she's never been the one with big dorky glasses and frizzy hair. She's never sat in the corner and wished she knew how to ask out her crush. She asks, no she tells her crush where they're going for their date.

And Spock is a dork, but he's got the whole confidence of steel going on as well.

I guess Chekov is a dork, but he's also the baby, the youngest, and I can never connect with the youngest vibe. Sulu's got an eldest vibe going on (even though I've seen him characterised as the youngest child and it does work, but there's something mature about him, that Chekov doesn't have.)

So yes, I think there's bits of him I can say oh yes, I get that, geeky, weird, probably awkward in social interactions. Like, most of the crew, they'd be pretty okay with people. McCoy would be abrupt, but I bet he can turn on the charm. Spock would be pretty shit, but that's Vulcans for you. But Sulu? I can totally imagine Sulu hiding behind a drink while Kirk goes round schmoozing everyone. I can see him standing doing the tall dark silent thing, not really from any major intelligence (though he is smart) but more from a Mr Darcy style - oh bloody fuck there are strangers everywhere and I do not know them and can someone from the crew please come and save me now?)

And no, having similarities doesn't always result in obsession, so there's probably more to it than that, but IDK what.

He is a BAMF, you know, dork that he is, I bet no one ever beat him up for lunch money, he'd fucking hospitalise them. And he has a fucking SWORD and he's fucking NINJA. You really can't beat that, you just can't.

I fancy the pants off him, okay?

So yes, there's my little love letter to Sulu.

And now I open it up to the floor, recs anyone? Sulu-centric recs? I shall love you forever...

the clicking, it is awesome... )

So I tried to make a vid, and again my computer failed me, ACK I don't know why I bother, it's too depressing.

ANYWAY then I went to work on pre-series, OMG!OMG! ANGST TO THE MAX also, pathetic fallacy=lol-cakes.

Anyway part 5 is done, I'll go back to it later and fix it up a bit, then send it off to be beta-ed.

Now I need to go have a break and shake off some of my angst, then I want to work on the Valentine's Challenge fics...


So to make this post less useless, here have some random arty possibly header-like things.
I realise this is a direct contradiction of my anti-art making comments earlier today...
